ABOUT THE PROGRAMME
As a market, being fluent in the US legal system and all that it entails is vital to our competitive position and long-term prosperity.
This programme will provide delegates with a heightened understanding of US civil litigation through real-time, first-hand exposure to courts and experienced attorneys. Delegates will explore topics including:
- allegations of bad faith
- expert selection
- declaratory judgment actions
- discovery including depositions
- pre-trial motions
Delegates will gain practical experience throughout the intensive five-day programme through the use of a specific ‘fact pattern’. This will involve participants walking through the various stages of litigation including the notification of the claim, the investigation and the lawsuit, and will culminate with all delegates participating in a mock trial.
Presentations will cover key topics that are important to consider when faced with these claims, as well as the disputes that can arise. The modules will be delivered by a range of expert speakers from Wilson Elser’s US offices.
Delegates will participate in group discussions and exercises, role plays and interactive scenarios taken from ‘real-life’ situations during each session. They will also build long-term networks within local and global markets.
The modules will be delivered by a range of expert speakers from Wilson Elser’s US offices.
